The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards take place this Sunday and there are a couple of ways to watch the big show from home.

Fox’s coverage of the Emmys begins at 6:30 p.m. ET with a 90-minute pre-show hosted by Jenny McCarthy, Kelly Osbourne and Shannon Sharpe of Fox Sports. The main show begins at 8 p.m. ET and will air live on both coasts.

If you’ve got basic cable, you’ll be able to watch the show through your TV box or antenna. Cable subscribers can also log-in to stream the broadcast on or on the FOX NOW app.

If you don’t have cable, you can still catch the show by signing up for Hulu with Live TV, fuboTV, or Sling TV. All three services include Fox and let you stream all their live TV channels from your computer, tablet or phone, or by casting it onto a physical television or screen.

Hulu’s deal gets you access to all their originals (like The Handmaid’s Tale, Four Weddings and a Funeral, and Stephen King’s Castle Rock) plus all the main live sports and entertainment channels for less than $45/month (think Bravo, E! ESPN, FX and USA). Grab the 7-day free trial they’re offering to lock in a viewing date with the Emmys before Sunday. You can cancel anytime.

Sling TV, meantime, is more of an a la carte package, letting you mix and match channels to create your own TV menu. Pricing starts at just $15/month, which makes Sling TV one of the cheapest deals out there. Again, there’s no contract required, though Sling is currently offering a free Roku Express when you subscribe and prepay for two months of service.

fuboTV, which prides itself on its sports and entertainment offerings, is also offering a 7-day free trial to check out the service. Sign-up now and get instant access to the Emmys tonight, along with a ton of other channels. The company will email you before your 7-day trial is up as a friendly reminder to cancel, or, presumably, to offer a ton of incentives to keep the subscription going.

This year’s Primetime Emmy nominees are led by HBO’s Game of Thrones, which earned a record-breaking 32 nominations for its final season.

The 2019 Primetime Emmy Awards are here and there so many incredible shows nominated this year (think everything from When They See Us and Game of Thrones to This Is Us and The Marvelous Mrs Maisel). With so much talent amongst the 2019 nominations, the stakes will undoubtedly be higher than ever at this year’s show — and you’re definitely going to want to know how to watch the Emmys.

If you already know you won’t have access to a TV or cable this year, though, that’s okay — there are other options for streaming the highly anticipated show:

How to Stream the 2019 Emmys

  • If you do have a cable account but aren’t able to watch this year’s show live on TV, you should be able to log in to or the FOX NOW app with your cable credentials and watch from there. Once you’ve signed in, you’ll also be able to catch up on all your other favorite FOX shows (ahem, The Masked Singer).
  • If you don’t have cable, have no fear: Account holders can also log in to such services as Hulu and Sling TV to watch the Emmys live from there.

How to Watch the 2019 Emmys Red Carpet Coverage

  • This year, People and Entertainment Weekly will once again be spearheading the official digital red carpet coverage. Catch their Emmys pre-show at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT on streaming network PeopleTV,, or
  • You’ll also be able to follow along with People and EW’s red carpet coverage on their Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube channels.

An added bonus: If you head over to during the show, you’ll find the show’s Emmys Backstage LIVE! stream. This will give you an exclusive behind-the-curtain look at what, exactly, happens backstage throughout the show.

The 71st annual Primetime Emmy Awards are set for Sunday, with the ceremony to air live from downtown Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater on Fox beginning at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT. The network will also offer the broadcast via authentication at and on the Fox Now app.

The night will cap off the celebration of the year’s best in TV, after last weekend’s two-night Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Fox hasn’t given many hints about the show, which is going hostless for only the fourth time in Emmy history and for the first time since 2003. But it did say this week that Thomas Lennon will handle voice-over duties with a “refreshing, lighthearted take on the traditional factoids that audiences typically learn as winners make their way to the podium mixed with jokes, commentary and unexpected anecdotes.”

Also in the works: the music for the annual “In Memoriam” montage will be performed by Halsey, Adam Devine will perform to introduce the Variety categories, and for the first time in recent memory there won’t be a live orchestra.

There will be plenty of time to warm up for Sunday’s show with a range of pre-program offerings on TV and online, along with the Television Academy’s “Backstage LIVE!” companion program, which will stream behind-the-scenes coverage of winners on, and the Academy’s Facebook page ( during the ceremony.

Official coverage will be available before, during and after the ceremony on the Fox Facebook pages. The TV Academy will also feature content on Instagram and Twitter (handle for both: @TelevisionAcad) via the hashtag #Emmys.

Fox, hosting its first Emmys since becoming an independent network after former parent 21st Century Fox’s merger with Disney, is also hosting the official live red carpet programming. That begins with Fox’s Live Emmy Red Carpet Preshow, which begins at 6:30 PM ET/3:30 PM PT and will be co-hosted by the network’s The Masked Singer co-host Jenny McCarthy, Fox Sports’ Shannon Sharpe and Kelly Osbourne. At 7 PM ET/4 PM PT is Fox’s Live Emmy Red Carpet Arrivals leading up to the show.

Fox said plans a reveal about Season 2 of its hits music competition series The Masked Singer during the preshow (if that will be visible behind those Big Ass Fans on the red carpet — which is actually deep purple this year — in front of the Microsoft Theater).

Speaking of the red carpet, E! is doing its annual thing as well, with Countdown to the Red Carpet: The 2019 Emmy Awards beginning at 4:30 PM ET/1:30 PM PT followed by Live From the Red Carpet at 6 PM ET/3 PM PT hosted by Giuliana Rancic and Jason Kennedy.

On the digital side, official pre-show coverage will be available from the likes of People and Entertainment Weekly magazines via the two-hour “People & Entertainment Weekly Red Carpet Live: Emmys 2019,” which will stream beginning at 6 PM ET/3 PM PT on and and their Facebook and Twitter platforms and YouTube channels.

IMDb is producing the official digital post-show, “IMDb LIVE After the Emmys Presented by CBS All Access” beginning at 11 PM ET/8 PM PT and simulcast on IMDb,, Amazon Live, Twitch and Twitter.

updated 9.17.19

The Emmy Awards broadcast usually has its ups and down, but the 2019 ceremony coming up Sunday should offer some historic moments. For one thing, “Game of Thrones,” the blockbuster HBO series, is up for a boatload of awards for its eighth and final season.

Some fans groused about how the story played out, the way some characters were hastily disposed of and an embarrassing glitch or two. But odds are, Emmy voters will honor “Game of Thrones” for its massive ambition and even more massive success.

The 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards may offer lovely parting gifts to other notable shows as well, including another HBO all-star, “Veep.” The political comedy ended its run with a sharp satirical needle. Was the comedy a little too stinging, or will “Veep” triumph?

And will star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who has already won six Emmys for her outstanding work as an ethically challenged politico — to put it mildly — take another victory lap?

The 2019 nominations are, by and large, an impressive group, recognizing such outstanding series as “When They See Us,” “Succession,” “Chernobyl,” “Escape at Dannemora,” and, oh yeah, “Schitt’s Creek,” the sleeper of the year.

Perhaps more than who will win, the question looming over this year’s Emmy show is: will it be entertaining, a train wreck, or a little of both?

Following in the Oscar ceremony’s footsteps, Fox has opted not to have a host for the primetime Emmys. We’ll have to wait and see whether that choice moves things along, or results in a free-for-all.

Mrs. Maisel amazed us, Game of Thrones played out and Chernobyl blew up. It’s been a massive year for television, but which of these TV shows will claim the honor of an Emmy?

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles tonight, Sunday, Sept. 22 and will be broadcast in the US by Fox starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. Before we dive into all the nominees and predictions, let’s cover how cord cutters can actually watch it.

Setting the scene

This year is going to be big for Game of Thrones — the show ended in May, and 2019 is its last chance to scoop a third Emmy for best drama. HBO’s phenomenally popular fantasy show leads the pack with 32 nominations, despite a final season that divided viewers (it already won 10 awards at this year’s Creative Arts Emmys). Nine of the show’s stars are nominated for the lead or supporting actor categories, including Gwendoline Christie who nominated herself much to the confusion of fans.

Thrones plays a big part in making HBO the network with the most nominations. This year HBO claims 137 noms for shows including pitch-black comedy Barry and cutting satire Veep, which also ended this year. The network brought us powerful one-off dramas Chernobyl and Sharp Objects, while you can currently catch up with the new season of Succession, a biting look at the luxurious lives of the super-rich that plays like Game of Thrones with helicopters and boardroom battles instead of dragons and sword fights.

The finale of Game of Thrones divided fans, but there’s no denying the show’s overall impact.


Just behind Thrones is When They See Us, with 16 nominations. The hard-hitting docu-drama is based on a true story, a big trend on the big screen and increasingly dominates the small screen. Chernobyl, Escape at Dannemora, A Very English Scandal and Fosse/Verdon are other true stories on the shortlist.

When They See Us is one of many shows to earn nominations for streaming service Netflix, which could win awards for shows like Ozark, Russian Doll and the final season of House of Cards.

Netflix rival Amazon Prime Video has been nominated 47 times, including 20 for the streaming service’s irrepressible original show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Amazon also claims nominations for Fleabag and A Very English Scandal, which appeared on the BBC first.

Winner predictions

How will fan reaction to Game of Thrones and other shows influence Emmy voters? Look here for the full list of nominees, and here for a handy guide on how to watch their shows. It also might be useful to check out this guide to who’s behind the voting, what with a level of secrecy surrounding the whole thing.

Also note that the Emmys are following in the Oscars’ footsteps by not having a host. It worked out for the Academy, so let’s hope one of TVs biggest nights has a good one too.

Outstanding drama series

  • Better Call Saul
  • Bodyguard
  • Game of Thrones
  • Killing Eve
  • Ozark
  • Pose
  • Succession
  • This Is Us

It’s got to be Thrones — partly because it’s likely most Emmy voters will have actually watched the show’s entire eighth and final season, and partly because there may be some goodwill toward sending the massively influential show out with a bang. That’s not to mention the hefty bundle of Emmys it bagged at the Creative Arts Emmys — focused on technical achievement, which aside from one controversial episode, has been one of Thrones’ best assets.

Outstanding comedy series

  • Barry
  • Fleabag
  • The Good Place
  • The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
  • Russian Doll
  • Schitt’s Creek
  • Veep

Veep is also heading out the door after its seventh and final season aired in May, but with so many worthy competitors in the category it has dominated for the last four years, it may have to step aside for the likes of the Bill Hader-starring Barry. The dark comedy’s second season not only bettered the first, but it also turned heads with a surreal standout episode upping its credentials as something completely unique on TV.

Outstanding limited series

  • Chernobyl
  • Escape at Dannemora
  • Fosse/Verdon
  • Sharp Objects
  • When They See Us

It’s between Chernobyl and When They See Us for sure. But Ava DuVernay’s miniseries might just pip the former with its unflinching, empathetic light shed on the case of the Central Park Five.

The case of the Central Park Five was cross-examined in Netflix’s When They See Us.

Atsushi Nishijima/Netflix

Outstanding television movie

  • Black Mirror: Bandersnatch
  • Brexit
  • Deadwood: The Movie
  • King Lear
  • My Dinner With Herve

Who didn’t have a go at clicking through the different pathways in Bandersnatch, Charlie Brooker’s painstaking choose-your-own-adventure movie? But while Bandersnatch ticks the uniqueness box, the poignant vote would go to Deadwood: The Movie. Arriving 13 years after the TV show ended, with the majority of the original cast including Timothy Olyphant and Ian McShane, it would be some victory for the celebrated show.

Outstanding lead actress in a drama series

  • Emilia Clarke, Game of Thrones
  • Jodie Comer, Killing Eve
  • Viola Davis, How to Get Away With Murder
  • Laura Linney, Ozark
  • Mandy Moore, This Is Us
  • Sandra Oh, Killing Eve
  • Robin Wright, House of Cards

She lost out last year to a gracious Claire Foy (The Crown), but this year’s the one for Sandra Oh, the bumbling heart of everyone’s favorite spy thriller, Killing Eve. It’ll be historic too: If Oh wins, she’ll be the first woman of Asian descent to win an Emmy in this category. This year’s the one.

Outstanding lead actor in a drama series

  • Jason Bateman, Ozark
  • Sterling K. Brown, This Is Us
  • Kit Harington, Game of Thrones
  • Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul
  • Billy Porter, Pose
  • Milo Ventimiglia, This Is Us

Some would say they know who it won’t be (sorry, Kit Harington). Sterling K. Brown would be a worthy winner, but in a tight category, the nod might go to Bob Odenkirk, who’s been knocking on the door for some while now with his consistently excellent work in Better Call Saul.

Outstanding lead actress in a comedy series

  • Christina Applegate, Dead to Me
  • Rachel Brosnahan, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep
  • Natasha Lyonne, Russian Doll
  • Catherine O’Hara, Schitt’s Creek
  • Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Fleabag

While the entire world may not have seen Fleabag, which they absolutely should, Emmy voters in this category probably have. That gives us some hope that Phoebe Waller-Bridge will take home lead actress. Despite this being Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ last chance to win with Veep, her six-year winning streak already seems like ample recognition.

Outstanding lead actor in a comedy series

  • Anthony Anderson, Black-ish
  • Don Cheadle, Black Monday
  • Ted Danson, The Good Place
  • Michael Douglas, The Kominsky Method
  • Bill Hader, Barry
  • Eugene Levy, Schitt’s Creek

After the success of season 2, Barry’s Bill Hader is the clear frontrunner to secure his second lead actor Emmy in a row.

Bill Hader has a hit on his hands as troubled assassin Barry.


Outstanding lead actress in a limited series or TV movie

  • Amy Adams, Sharp Objects
  • Patricia Arquette, Escape at Dannemora
  • Aunjanue Ellis, When They See Us
  • Joey King, The Act
  • Niecy Nash, When They See Us
  • Michelle Williams, Fosse/Verdon

Neither Michelle Williams nor Amy Adams have won an Emmy yet. It’s a close race between the two worthy winners, but given Williams’ transformation into real-life actress and dancer Gwen Verdon, she might have the edge.

Outstanding lead actor in a limited series or TV movie

  • Mahershala Ali, True Detective
  • Benicio Del Toro, Escape at Dannemora
  • Hugh Grant, A Very English Scandal
  • Jared Harris, Chernobyl
  • Jharrel Jerome, When They See Us
  • Sam Rockwell, Fosse/Verdon

For his exceptional work in When They See Us, we’re going to give this one to Jharrel Jerome. The actor portrays both the young and adult versions of Korey Wise, one of the Central Park Five.

Outstanding supporting actress in a drama series

  • Gwendoline Christie, Game of Thrones
  • Julia Garner, Ozark
  • Lena Headey, Game of Thrones
  • Fiona Shaw, Killing Eve
  • Sophie Turner, Game of Thrones
  • Maisie Williams, Game of Thrones

We know it should be Lena Headey. But given Cersei had a disappointingly small amount to do in Game of Thrones’ final season, there’s the small chance Gwendoline Christie will mark a triumphant win for her role as Ser Brienne of Tarth, an influential and unconventional female warrior and role model.

Gwendoline Christie put herself forward for an Emmy nomination, much to the delight of Game of Thrones fans.


Outstanding supporting actor in a drama series

  • Alfie Allen, Game of Thrones
  • Jonathan Banks, Better Call Saul
  • Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Game of Thrones
  • Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones
  • Giancarlo Esposito, Better Call Saul
  • Michael Kelly, House of Cards
  • Chris Sullivan, This Is Us

In another Game of Thrones heavy segment, the odds are Peter Dinklage will cap off an impressive season for Tyrion’s part (he survived, that’s some feat in itself) and take home his fourth acting Emmy.

The Emmys for behind-the-scenes work

The Primetime Emmys take place Sunday, but Game of Thrones has already bagged a handful of awards thanks to the Creative Arts Emmy Awards this past weekend, which recognize the hard work that goes on behind the scenes. Thrones claimed trophies for music, makeup, costumes, casting, editing, sound, visual effects, stunts and opening titles.

Amazon’s 1960s-set Marvelous Mrs. Maisel fittingly won awards for its period costumes and hairstyles. It was also recognized for its cinematography and claimed both guest actor and guest actress awards in the comedy categories for Luke Kirby and Jane Lynch.

The Handmaid’s Tale claimed both guest star awards for drama, while Fleabag, Game of Thrones, Queer Eye and When They See Us were recognized for their casting. Short online comedy State of the Union won Rosamund Pike and Chris O’Dowd the best acting awards for a short-form show. Chernobyl, Free Solo and Queer Eye also won multiple awards.

HBO is leading with 25 Creative Arts wins, followed closely by Netflix with 23. The streaming service claimed awards for Queer Eye, Our Planet, Russian Doll, When They See Us, Bandersnatch, Glow, One Day at a Time, Springsteen on Broadway, The Ranch and sci-fi animation Love, Death and Robots.

One award Netflix missed out on was the Outstanding Variety Special award, despite having four out of five entries on the shortlist including Hannah Gadsby’s Nanette and Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé. That one went to James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke special episode on CBS with Paul McCartney in Liverpool. (Editors’ note: CBS is the parent company of CNET.)

Elsewhere, Apple won an Emmy for Carpool Karaoke: The Series. The Simpsons defied those who say the long-running show is on the decline with a win for an episode from the show’s 30th season, while Star Trek: Discovery took home an award for its prosthetic make-up. Meanwhile, outside of the traditional TV world Oculus, Twitch and NASA were recognized for their work with interactive media.

Emmys 2019: How to Watch, Who’s Nominated, And Everything Else to Know

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards take place Sunday, Sept. 22, starting at 8 p.m. ET. But although the show hasn’t officially taken place yet, there have already been gobs of 2019 Emmy winners announced in the creative arts and technical categories. Based on the list of nominees for the Emmy Awards, the big show is bound to be an entertaining and talked-about event.

Sure, Game of Thrones is probably set to lay one last claim to the proverbial Iron Throne and walk away with a lot of trophies from its record-setting deluge of nominations — yes, probably even for the categories fans had the most issues with during Season 8 — but there are also plenty of deserving shows to watch out for after they landed their first Emmy nominations, like Fleabag, Pose, and Schitt’s Creek.

Meanwhile, Television Academy favorites like Barry, Better Call Saul (even if Rhea Seehorn got robbed), This Is Us, and Veep will also be well represented in multiple categories, and a few strong freshman series made the cut, like Russian Doll and Dead to Me. Overall, this year’s crop of nominees delivered some mostly pleasant surprises, capping off a stellar year in TV.

Full winners for the 2019 Emmys will be announced Sunday night, but numerous Emmy Awards have already been handed out at the Creative Arts Emmys, which took place last weekend, on Sept. 14 and Sept. 15. In addition to the Creative Arts Emmys, the juried winners for the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards have already been announced in several categories, including animation, choreography, interactive media, and motion design.

What Are the Creative Arts Emmys?

Great question. Ahead of the main Emmys show, the Creative Arts Emmys award winners in a copious amount of small categories, including guest actor and actress in both comedy and drama. Head here for the full list of winners.

On night one, presenters included Roy Choi and Jon Favreau, Jeff Goldblum, Diane Guerrero, Marie Kondo, Lisa Kudrow, Sig Hansen, Derek Hough, Wanda Sykes, Will Arnett, Marsha Stephanie Blake, W. Kamau Bell, Kate Chastain, Terry Crews, Seth Green, Mandy Hansen, Carrie Ann Inaba, Nick Kroll, Lee Rosbach, Nicole Scherzinger, Julio Torres, Robin Thede, and Necar Zadegan.

Night two presenters featured a reunion of the In Living Color cast (including Keenen Ivory Wayans, Shawn Wayans, David Alan Grier, and Tommy Davidson), as well as Alfie Allen, Charlie Barnett, Rachel Bloom, Ron Cephas Jones, Rob Corddry, Laverne Cox, Lisa Edelstein, Anna Konkle, Maya Erskine, Chris O’Dowd, Ryan O’Connell, Wendell Pierce, Marcus Scribner, Michaela Watkins, Maude Apatow, Ryan Michelle Bathe, Rocky Carroll, Ryan Eggold, Jared Harris, Neil Patrick Harris, Natasha Lyonne, Peter MacNicol, Shameik Moore, Olivia Munn, Patton Oswalt, Nico Santos, Jane Seymour, Maggie Siff, Sydney Sweeney, Jonathan Tucker, and Carice van Houten.

Who Is Hosting the Emmys?

Nobody! Following this year’s host-free Academy Awards, Fox President Charlie Collier announced the Emmys will also opt out of having a host this year. It will mark just the fourth time the show has gone on without a central host, after 1975, 1998, and 2003. Even without a host, fans can still count on things to start with an opening number in keeping with the show’s tradition.

While announcing the network’s decision to go host-free, Collier mentioned that Fox wants to “honor” some of the year’s major outgoing series, including Game of Thrones, Veep, The Big Bang Theory, and Fox’s own Empire.

Who Is Presenting at the Emmys?

All of the Game of Thrones stars who’ve been nominated for their work in the series’ final season — Emilia Clarke, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Peter Dinklage, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gwendoline Christie, Alfie Allen, and Carice van Houten — will unite to present at the 2019 Emmys. Additional nominees who are slated to present include Angela Bassett, Viola Davis, Michael Douglas, Billy Porter, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers, Taraji P. Henson, Terrence Howard, Peter Krause, Zendaya, and Naomi Watts.

Heading into Emmys weekend, the Television Academy announced even more big names who will either present at the ceremony or participate in another form: Tim Allen, Nick Cannon, James Corden, Adam Devine, Halsey, Jon Hamm, Timothy Hutton, Jharrel Jerome, Ken Jeong, Cherry Jones, Regina King, Luke Kirby, Hugh Laurie, Thomas Lennon, Jane Lynch, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Catherine O’Hara, Randall Park, Jimmy Smits, Brittany Snow, Marisa Tomei, Kerry Washington, and Bradley Whitford.

HBO also led the way in major awards nominations by a Comedy series for the second season of Bill Hader’s Barry, while Ava Duvernay’s Netflix miniseries, When They See Us, earned 11 major nominations, tops for a Limited Series/Television Movie.

How to watch the Emmys and answers to your other burning questions

Looking for the who, what, when, where, how, and why of this year’s Emmys? We’ve got you covered.

What: The Television Academy presents the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards

Where: The 7,100-seat Microsoft Theater at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles

When: The ceremony begins Sunday, Sept. 22, at 5 p.m. Pacific.


How to watch on TV: The ceremony will be broadcast on Fox.
How to stream online: On (requires cable subscription) or the FOX NOW app.
How to catch the red carpet: E!’s “Countdown to the Red Carpet” begins at 1:30 p.m., followed by E!’s “Live From the Red Carpet” at 3. Fox’s own pre-show begins at 3:30, followed by an hourlong arrivals special at 4.

Who are the hosts and presenters? For only the fourth time in Emmy history, the ceremony will be host-less. It worked for the Oscars! But there will be plenty of star power among presenters, including all 10 acting nominees from a little show called “Game of Thrones.” Other announced presenters include Angela Bassett, Stephen Colbert, Viola Davis, Michael Douglas, Billy Porter and Zendaya.

  • Mindy Kaling is pleased that her bad Emmys experience years ago means other women of color won’t have their eligibility challenged in the future.
  • Mindy Kaling claims that the Television Academy devalued her work on “The Office” ahead of the Emmys — but the academy says it wasn’t personal.
  • From a must-have pantsuit to a very Hot Priest, “Fleabag” defined a year in which Emmy voters responded to TV’s social-media water-cooler more than ever.
  • From Milo Ventimiglia’s adorable parents to the “Queer Eye” cast meeting Lin-Manuel Miranda, behold the memorable Emmys moments that didn’t make the telecast.

Why you should watch: Among the key storylines at this year’s Emmys is whether television royalty will go out on top or whether it’s the upstarts’ time to shine. HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and — to a lesser extent — “Veep” come into the ceremony as favorites to cap off record Emmy runs with one last victory lap. But their farewell seasons may have positioned rivals such as drama contenders “Pose,” “This Is Us” and “Succession” and comedy nominees “Barry,” “Fleabag” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” to contest their crowns.


Other categories to watch include comedy actress, in which “Veep” star Julia Louis-Dreyfus will attempt to break her tie with Cloris Leachman and nab a ninth acting Emmy, the most of any performer in history. In drama actress, Sandra Oh of “Killing Eve” faces off against co-star Jodie Comer. And the limited series category — so thin at the start of the decade that miniseries were combined with TV movies from 2011 to 2013 — features some of the year’s most highly regarded work, including late-breaking entrants “Chernobyl” and “When They See Us.”

The 2019 Creative Arts Emmys have been awarded, and winners are notated on our Emmy nominations list.

Back on Sunday night after going up against “Monday Night Football” last year — and hitting an all-time low of 10.2 million viewers — Fox will surely be hoping to see a boost from the aforementioned HBO series’ swan song.

How to Watch the 2019 Emmy Awards Online

The 71st Primetime Emmy Awards won’t be one to miss. Whether you’re a “Killing Eve” fan eager to see co-stars Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer face off in the same category, a “Veep” enthusiast excited to see Julia Louis-Dreyfus potentially nab the honor of most Emmy wins of any performer in history or a “Game of Thrones” lover expecting to see the HBO show break more records, this awards season is one for the books.

The ceremony will take place Sept. 22 at 5 p.m. PT out of the 7,100-seat Microsoft Theater at L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles and broadcast live on Fox. Additionally, viewers can also watch a livestream of the events on (with a cable subscription) or the Fox Now app. The broadcast will begin with Fox’s own pre-show beginning at 3:30 p.m. P.T., followed by an hour-long arrivals special at 4 p.m.

And for the fourth time in Emmy history, the ceremony will be host-less, just like the 2019 Oscars. Instead, there will be a variety of stars taking the stage to present awards and maintain the show’s flow. Among the announced presenters are Angela Bassett, Stephen Colbert, Viola Davis, Michael Douglas, Billy Porter and Zendaya, in addition to much of the “” cast, including Kit Harington, Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklage, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams.

The 2019 Emmys, which air live nationwide on Sunday, September 22 beginning at 5:00 p.m. PT/8:00 p.m. ET, will be available for cable TV subscribers to watch online at the FOX website. And in certain markets, you can watch the live stream if you subscribe to DIRECTV Now, Hulu Live TV, Playstation Vue, and YouTube TV. All of these streaming services offer free trial periods.

The Emmy Awards red carpet show from outside the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles kicks off 30 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony. TV’s top honors are following the lead of this year’s Academy Awards and won’t have a host. That should speed up the proceedings, with a whopping 27 awards scheduled to be handed out. That is three more than either the Oscars or the Tonys.

We are predicting the winners of all these races at the 7ist Primetime Emmy Awards: “Game of Thrones,” “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “When They See Us” will take home three Emmys apiece, including the top program prizes. They’ll be followed by “Chernobyl,” “Killing Eve” and “Veep” with two each.

The 71st Emmy Awards are almost here. Stars of TV and streaming will converge at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles to celebrate the medium that brought us “Chernobyl” and “Veep.” The final season of “Game of Thrones” leads the pack with 32 nominations.

“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” an Amazon Prime comedy series, grabbed 20 nominations. HBO boasts a dizzying 137 nominations, with Netflix close behind with 117 nominations.

Noticeably absent, however, is a host. The Emmys decided to follow the Oscars lead and do away with the position this year.
